Course Description

As we approach the end of 2020, it is clear that remote proceedings will continue to be valuable and essential tools for attorneys, even after the legal profession returns to greater normalcy. But can remote dispute resolution be as successful as in person? How does one effectively communicate with a client through remote mediation? What technical skills does a lawyer need to participate in a remote mediation? Can a remote mediation succeed with multiple parties, and if so how should such a mediation be structured?

In this one hour program taught by Robert Jossen, principal of Robert Jossen P.C., lawyers will learn critical skills for conducting remote mediations. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the differences between remote mediation and in person mediation
  2. Prepare effectively for remote mediations
  3. Employ written/demonstrative materials to enhance mediation

Good program with solid practical tips. I had already done a remote mediation, and never thought of using on-screen exhibits. It's a great idea that I will use in my next planned remote mediation in January.
